Finance Minister Mathias Cormann says the government is working hard on the economy.

Australians believe the Turnbull government is better at handling the economy than Labor even though opinion polls continue to point to the coalition losing the next election.

The latest Ipsos-Fairfax poll found 38 per cent of the 1400 people surveyed thought the government has the better policies for managing the economy, comfortably ahead of Labor on 28 per cent, while Scott Morrison leads Chris Bowen 38 to 29 per cent as preferred treasurer.

"People are looking at what Bill Shorten is proposing to do and they realise he would leave us all worse off, that it would lead to less growth, to fewer jobs, to lower wages and to less opportunity," Finance Minister Mathias Cormann told Sky News on Monday.
